. Sun Zi said who arrive first at the battleground will have sufficient time to rest and prepare against the enemy. In the business world, a first mover is a company that aims to gain an advantageous and perhaps insurmountable market position by being the first to establish itself in a given market. Once a first mover has become established, the fact that someone has already arrived becomes in itself a barrier to entry for prospective competitors and the competitors have to rush into business to perform good business. When competitors are success to perform good business they already exhausted because the first-mover have prospect new product or better product. The first-mover advantage refers to the first significant company to move into a market, not merely the first company. A first-mover needs to show the figure of the overall rewards is more than the beginning or underlying risks it becomes a success first-mover. Sometimes first-movers are rewarded with huge profit margins and a monopoly like status. First-mover is person that can adept in warfare seeks to control and manipulate his enemy instead of being controlled and manipulated. The first-mover is not able to capitalize on its advantage, leaving the opportunity for other firms to compete effectively and efficiently versus their earlier entrants.

population and have the big opportunity to initiate the market. to gain a good population. Sometimes. it can advance its products so that other companies could not compare with the first mover. the company have already make the important step with first enroll to the market which can build good reputation. by inflicting damage.Content According to Sun Tzu. first mover has the chance to cause competitors to be peace with it. or. it is because the others competitors may influence their incomes or reputation of their company. But. before others competitor arrive. for the late comers of the competitor. they have to work harder in order to catch up the first mover because they lack of experiences and population. there are still many more competitor. he can make it impossible for the enemy to approach. the late comer’s employees may face jobhopping to the first mover company. So. In the long run. they have to consume a lot of time to build their business in successfully. he can cause the enemy to approach of his own accord. company who has invented something new. the late competitor need to prepare by being “attack” from others competitor. it has the more advantages such as it can monopoly the market. first mover has also the bigger opportunity to inflict damages to its competitors for not to approach. first inventor has the more experiences. a big company will be interested to merge or co-operate with another company in order to make them stronger.

So it is hard for the late comers to compete with the first movers. while those who arrive later and join the battle in haste will easily be fill into a defensive position. When we use this principle applies to the business. Besides that. it is because in the market not only got one competitor. whoever is first in the field and awaits the coming of the enemy. For this principle. . Sun Tzu did mention about by holding out advantages to him. whoever is second in the field and has to hasten to battle will arrive exhausted which means those who arrives at the ‘battlefield’ first will be at ease and unhurried. will be fresh for the fight. Secondly. For those late comers in the market.

The competitors have to meet the challenge even if they are safe behind deep trenches and high ramparts because first mover attacks the area that the competitors must rescue. because this method can make the first mover to increase their product and compare with the late comers. So in this situation. First mover could easily defeats competitors based on their general knowledge and experience. The late comer cannot compete with the first mover causes their product can even improve highly like the first mover or compare with them. Some of the first mover would like to wait the late comers to take action first. first movers have the advantages to attack the late comers and some of the late comers can’t even defense in the market. and they cannot make any revenge since first mover is moving too fast to catch up. When first mover does not wish to engage the competitors.Sun Tzu Art of War highlights that you can be sure of succeeding in your attacks if you only attack places which are undefended. or else they have to quit the market. Competitors could not stop struggling because they are attacked by first mover to their weakness. Findings . it can set up a place for defend anywhere like maintaining its businesses and the competitors will not come to attack it because it had diverted their attention elsewhere such as grab their attention to other competitors. You can ensure the safety of your defense if you only hold positions that cannot be attacked.
